The flashing blade of a weighted spinner seems to mesmerize fish & entice them into striking. These lures don't resemble any natural prey but predatory fish especially trout & salmon find them irresistible.
Spinners are easy to cast & retrieve &, if they spin, they will catch steelhead & trout! But there are a lot of subtleties to fishing spinners well in rivers & streams & Spinner Magic! will help you become a master spinner-angler.
Over the past 45 years, Jim Bedford has plied the rivers & creeks of North America for tens of thousands of hours with a spinner on the end of his line. He is a retired environmental scientist with degrees in fisheries biology so there is a lot of science behind his techniques & he has held nothing back in writing Spinner Magic!. Everything from understanding the habits of the trout & salmon species to reading & matching the water, even crafting your own spinners is included.
Whether you're a seasoned spinner-fisherman or a complete novice at spinner-tossing, Spinner Magic! will greatly enhance your overall success on the water.
